JAMAICA—The concert series at the historic Jamaica Town Hall continues with a double bill of Strangled Darlings and Tough Old Bird on Thursday, Sept. 20, at 7 p.m.
The duo Strangled Darlings hails from central Vermont with George Veech on mandolin and Jessica Anderly on custom tenor bass and foot drums.
Their songs work with nontraditional subjects for inspiration. They bring punk intensity to folk pop and completely bust the mold, creating smart, irreverent tunes using classic acoustic folk instrumentation paired with rough, impassioned vocals, according to a news release.
Tough Old Bird will be the second duo to take the stage, with brothers Matthew and Nathan Corrigan from Fillmore, N.Y.
They play modern folk music that reflects the landscape it comes from, a place where the last train just pulled out. The core of their sound comes from Matthew’s intricate acoustic guitar work and from Nathan’s voice and nimble harmonica playing.
